Judaism is one of the world’s oldest and most powerful faiths, with more than 14.7 million adherents in 2019. With the “enhanced” Jewish population, including those with just a sliver of Jewish ancestry, the global Jewish population grows to 20 million people.
Israel and the United States are the two countries where the majority of Jewish people dwell. In April 2021, an estimated 6.89 million Jews were living in Israel, according to statistics from the Jewish Virtual Library and also the American Jewish Year Book cited in this post.
Only 5.7 million people in the United States, mostly in New York, California, Florida, and the state of New Jersey. There are only two countries with populations of more than one million Jews: Israel and Palestine.
